Ummm can i Update the firmware on my 360 of My PC doesnt use SATA but EIDE? hmmm
nope....you need on board sata or a sata pci card
hope this helps
Oh wow look at that, i consider myself a really savvy PC user , since i have been on since the tandy , commadore days and i had no idea that they make a sata pci card. NICE. I learned something new today.. Do you guys have one to reccomend since i did a search and it came up with tons.. (hmmm i even see ones with usb 2.0 ports)
depends what drive you have:
needs the via chipset
needs the silicon chipset
okay i was wondering about this too...because i dont believe i have an sata on my chipset....
so if i have the samsung drive a pci sata will not work??
yeah it will, you just need a VIA chipset on your pci sata card
Ohhhh ok so if I do get a pci-sata card it has to have a silicon chipset right (cuz i have hitachi 360).
Now i understand. Ive been reading the forum about chipset this and chipset that but didnt know exactly which chipset was being talked about. Just to confirm "silicon" is the actual type of chip right?
and the silicon chipset i need is the SIL3112 ?
that sounds about right
i have a question bout this flashin stuff for the 360... i wanna do it an i have seen tuts on it but i just dont no were to get these chipsets from an that cable that u hook up to ur 360's drive to ur computer... if u guys could help it would me sweet thanks
This card is for Samsung drives and Hitachi 0078FK and 0079FK. I haven't tested with any other Hitachi drives but it *should* work for all other versions of the Hitachi drive.
Here's the card I reccommend for all Hitachi drives other than the 78,79.
I've personally bought my SIL from this guy on ebay and I can pretty much assure you if you offer $15 you can get this card for $25 shipped. I recieved my card 2 days after I paid him.
Hope these links help you guys.
would i have to buy both of those items... an how would i go about installing them on to my laptop?
what kind of laptop do you have?
i have a compaq persario r3000
just google, SATA PCMCIA VIA 6421 chipset, should have something there on what you need.
